Although controversial in some of her beliefs, Suzanne amassed a solid following as a figure in the self-help field. However, her advocacy for some alternative means of treatment landed her in hot water in the past, including criticism from the American Cancer Society.

Suzanna battled breast cancer for 23 years (she'd also battled skin cancer) and was outspoken about her beliefs in alternative treatments. Sadly, she announced in July 2023 that her breast cancer had returned. She passed away that October, a day before her 77th birthday.
